Learn to Train Pilot
Module #2
STAR 1
What is the Learn to Train pilot?
• CPC (Cumulative Points Calculation) was
introduced in 2005
• We want our youngest skaters to move away
from being judged in 6.0
• CPC is used at Jr Bronze level & higher in
STARSkate, Pre-Juvenile level & higher in
competitive
• STAR 1-5 aligns with the CPC judging system
CPC Overview
• In CPC - jumps, spins and step sequence
elements have a point value
• Judges assign ‘quality’ marks called ‘GOE’s or
Grades of Execution to each element
• Judges assign marks for 5 Program Components:
– Skating Skills, Transitions, Performance/Execution,
Choreography and Interpretation
• A detailed scorecard is given to skaters
CPC Structure/Process
• STAR 1-4 uses similar processes/structure as CPC
• In CPC, there are 2 sets of officials
– Technical Panel members – identify elements
– Judges & Referee – assign element quality marks &
assess Program Components
• In STAR 1-4 the roles of Tech Panel & Judges are
shared by one group of 3 Judges
• In STAR 5 the same panel structure is used as
CPC
STAR 1-4 Standards
• STAR 1-4 judges must apply standards in
relation to each STAR level
• A STAR 1 criteria of ‘good’ or ‘reasonable’
height, must be considered as what is ‘good’ or
‘reasonable’ for STAR 1
• Judges must not compare to what might be
‘good’ for higher or competitive (i.e. CPC) levels
• Assessments should reflect skater’s strengths,
but also technique corrections required
Assessment Standards
• There are similarities in the standard concepts
used in the 3 systems of assessment
Skate Canada Assessment Standards

-2, -3
• The standard for a Good in Preliminary test = a
Silver in a STAR 1, 2, 3 or 4 event
Who can judge STAR Events?
• Skate Canada judges who are trained to judge in
either 6.0 or CPC may judge STAR 1-4 levels
• These judges must attend re-training to
familiarize themselves with STAR procedures and
assessment criteria.
• In order to judge STAR 5, judges must be trained
to judge in CPC.
• Skate Canada Technical Officials may officiate in
STAR 1-4 events once they have attended STAR
training.
STAR 1
Priorities & Process
STAR 1 - Overview
• An elements event skated in groups
• Creates a fun group environment without the
anxiety of competition
• Coaches can remain on the ice with skaters
• Assessed against a standard by a team of 3
judges
• The focus is on fundamentals and assessment
of key skills
STAR 1
Elements scored to standard (Gold, Silver, Bronze or Merit)
1) Stroking Exercise: Forward crosscuts on the centre circle in both directions.
2) Three Jumps:
a) Waltz Jump
b) Single Salchow
c) Single Toe-Loop
3) Two Spins:
a) Forward Upright Spin
b) Backward Upright Spin
4) Forward Spiral Sequence: A sequence of two forward spirals with no more than 4 steps in
between; one spiral on each foot, unassisted position.
5) Creative Expression Routine (30 seconds – music provided by the Section, selection
randomly chosen at competition – each flight to have a different music selection) – assessed
as “completed” only.
STAR 1 – Priorities
• Stroking Exercise:
– The beginning of good basic technique
• Jumps:
– Fundamentals: rotation, air position & landing
• Spins:
– Finding a balance point & controlling revolutions
• Spirals:
– Basic spiral position, control & beginnings of flexibility
• Creative Expression Routine:
– Attempting to skate to an unfamiliar piece of music
STAR 1 - Process
• In STAR 1 – the judges work as a team
• The Referee gives initial element assessment. Judge
2 records them on the marking sheet.
• If there is any disagreement, the judges discuss using
a consensus model.
• The agreed upon assessment is entered on the
marking sheet by Judge 2.
• The judges hand in the marking sheet
• An overall rating is calculated for each skater using
the majority of assessments
STAR 1 - Element Assessment
• Each element has 2-3 Assessment Points (STAR Technical Package)
• The judges consider each assessment point for an element
• The majority of ratings determines the overall assessment for
the element

STAR 1 – Marking Sheet
• Judge 3 records the Circle stroking time for Referee to
consider in element assessment.
• The marking sheet is handed in to the Data Specialists.
STAR 1 – Assessment Notes
• Any assessment point rated Merit = no higher than a
Bronze rating for element
• Any element with two or more assessment points
scored at Merit = Merit rating for element
• The Backward Upright Spin has only 2 assessment
points
• If the 2nd assessment point is higher than the first, the
final assessment is raised by one level
• If the 2nd assessment point is lower than the first, the
final assessment is lowered by one level
STAR 1 – Backward Upright Spin
• In this example, as assessment point 2 is lower than
assessment point one – the assessment lowers to a Bronze.

STAR 1 Recap
• Element based event where skaters are rated
as Gold, Silver, Bronze or Merit
• Skaters do not have to start at STAR 1 – they
may enter STAR at any level
• Sections may group skaters by age
• Creates a fun group environment
• The focus is on assessment of key skills
